8:46am
done because of the huge lobby pressure of the pesticide company. >> if we pass this, isn't it still in the realm of the feds and fda? won't they just say take it to court and say you can't do this? >> we're confident this will stand up in court. those labels will apply to california. the whole world is watching california to see if we can get it done and there will be other states moving forward with legislative and initiative attempts -- attempts. >> what -- you say, you that want to inform people. that this is going on is there a feeling this food is not healthy or -- and, again, we put labels on and the ingredients in and what is it, again, that triggered your interest in law to tell people about this? >> we do believe that genetically engineered food specifically are problematic. are there health concerns that
8:47am
lead to allergies and other effects showing up in the studies that have been done. environmental problems. just yesterday, the new york time his a story about the massive increases in pesticide use over the last 15 years of genetically-engineered crops, directly tied to the crops. >> is your goal to end genetically modified food? >> our goal is to give consumers the choice. that is how the market's supposed to work, give consumers the information and we decide voiding -- voting with our dollars and making the choices of what we eat and feed our families and what we want in the food system. local baseball fans, this is not the time to get too concerned. not yet. >> no, can you get nervous. the play-off started off on the wrong foot for the green and gold and orange and black. but, today is another day. highlights in the weekend. continues. cerned over clashes between syria and turkey. we don't call this our company, we call this our mission.

8:51am
panetta is using diplomatic channels to talk the two nations off of the path of war if that is possible. >> and this their is a -- that president obama lost the first debate to mitt romney. >> now, the first crucial first encounter passed. what do the candidates need to do to keep it going or get the momentum back going? we fut putt that question to former san francisco mayor willie brown and the chronicle's joe garafoli. what should they do? >> obama has to re-establish his dominance on the intellectual side, on the -- [ indiscernible ] side, he has to re-establish his dominance on the excitement side. can he do that? i don't know. >> and mitt romney? >> mitt romney has to keep going, keep plowing through in the same way. he was concise and crisp. like the ceo and chief that he aspires to be. >> it was interesting. this is the first time i ever recalled seeing the former massachusetts governor mitt romney show up on stage.
8:52am
until now, he's been completely avoiding, you never would have known he was the governor in massachusetts. met last debate, everything was governors of massachusetts. >> he was proud to talk about what happened with the school system in massachusetts. >> he was very proud to talk about healthcare and more importantly, when they asked the question about what would you do to change the environment in the cooperation, absence thereof in washington, he literally talked about how he did it and with 70% of the people being democrats who have the job. >> okay. is this -- what are the conservatives doing about this and this is mitt romney's move to the middle? >> they will grit their teeth and appreciate it as long as he's moving upwards in the polls. we don't know if he's going to get a bounce at all from the debate. we'll see in a couple of days. >> and this is -- [ overlapping speakers ] >> win, baby, win, baby. >> this is the new mitt romney and the win, baby, win. it's the al davis philosophy.
8:53am
just win, davis. >> no matter what, i believe he gets a bump, and i believe that bump will come from the crisp nature of his responses. he sounded like the common man. he did not sound like bain capital exploiting everyone who is part of a everyone in% for the 3%. he sounded like the guy from the streets. he sounded like the guy that i walked by almost every day working on the job on the same payroll. >> and he -- conservatives want him to go at obama and to express their anger with him and frustration with them. that is what he did. >> amazing. i never thought i would hear democrat willie brown say that. if i was mitt romney's people, i would grab this segment and turn it into a michelle. >> no, not really. i am being very candid. as a matter of fact, if you read my column, you would know that i said these are the things that mitt romney needs to do in order to be competitive and the debate.
8:54am
park air -- apparently he read it. >> apparently, the president didn't because mr. brown said he would be playing ropey dopey at the beginning and come out swing. instead, he was ropey dopey through the entire debate. >> i don't think he did that poorly, though. that is the thing. i think mitt romney did so well that it made him look a little worse. the expectations were a little bit higher. >> and looks a lot of what presidential television debates are about. it's how candidates present themselves. let's be honest. the average person listening to that debate, they didn't understand half of it. you were talking tax and medicare and the shifting of tremendous of dollars this way -- trillions of dollars this way and that way. it was the messenger rather than the message and that is how politics is. has been since the days of washington. >> it's true. we'll find out more about the vice presidential debate coming up later on this week and what we can expect in our next half hour. meantime, a double disappointment yesterday for bay area baseball fans.
8:55am

meningitis outbreak rose to seven. the centers for disease control and prevention said the infection spread to 60 people across nine states. the outbreak is linked to a steroids produced by a specialty pharmacy in massachusetts. the steroids has been recalled. it's 9:08. a lot of people wondering how many layers they should be wearing around the bay area today in. >> we're here with all of the answers as we're looking at the low overcast starting the day in the east bayshoreline and in parts of san francisco and up into sonoma county around santa rosa and cloudy skies. elsewhere, south bay and marin county for the first part. there is sunshine and to the east bay, they have the low clouds to start out with and not for long. the numbers are in the mid-50s, santa rosa, cooler at 52 and with some cloudy skies and san jose has 54; san jose is up to the mid-70s today and as we look from the highest point to
9:09am
solano county, that is mount vaca with sunshine in the east bay. the cooling trend begins and. >> mostly sunny skies rest of the bay area and showers, maybe, the first time we talked about that this year. and this is a potential. you will see why in a minute. hardly strictly, 61. and maybe 62. 63 degrees at fleet week. if you're going to be around the bay, of course, warmer to the east bay. as they zip around baywide, the low pressure to northern california and that continuings to sit and spin anded if is mild and mostly sunny skies out of this and as that inches to the shoreline, the circulation count clockwise means on the top side of the low. tuesday night, we could bring up some subtropical moisture from the south land that can
9:10am
trigger a few showers and this is giving us a glimpse of the low clouds hanging this afternoon. and they peel back to the shoreline and fill in again big time overnight and he will start the day with gun metal gray skies. for us, we'll get sunshine. out tomorrow, sfo looks good. no weather -- no weather- related delays there. hub check, denver, chicago, new york, partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies and today is not a bad day to travel or on monday. for the bay area, not a bad day to stay home either. sunny skies, san jose into the mid-70s, santa clare, 73; redwood city, 71 degrees and by the shoreline, on the cool side, half moon bay by my left ears, 63 degrees and 62 at civic and hayward. in the east bay, we'll look at numbers in the mid-70s,
9:11am
starting out with the low clouds in the east bayshore line along the callaberras fault and sunny skies to pleasanton and in the mid-70s. the north bay, pretty good. sonoma, 71 degrees and a beautiful place to go and ever go to the sebastieni though iter? >> no. i'll take him this afternoon. 71, peta lime a., 70, san jose and the extended forecast, looking for numbers to be mostly in the mid- to low 70s, even in what are typically the warmest likes in the bay area and this is when we get the grand reversal and climate in the bay area. the summer time, east bay is warmest. in the winter time, it's often the east bay that is coolest and we're transitioning. the inland numbers are coming down and they will this week and don't forget, a possibility of a sprinkle or two wednesday night, tuesday morning and warming it up next weekend. >> all right. >> just a possibility. >> just a chance. >> and we newt gingrich have to
9:12am
go continuous coverage on that. >> okay. and should a california require labeling of food containing genetically modified organisms? that is the question before california voters with prop 37. >> that's right, and supporters say that everybody has the right to know what is in their food and that is a simple idea. this morning, kathy fairbanks explain yes there is a no campaign. >> reporter: it will lead to a rise in lawsuits against grocers, food companies and family farmers. it will increase state beaurocracy and courages grocery bill and -- couples the grocery bill and exemptions not makes sense. >> let's talk about the grocery bills, that is what is important to people now. if food producers, they have to change their labels after few -- every few years, anyway, so why not have them put that on there while at it? >> because, consumers would view a label under proposition 37 as a warning. that something was wrong with
9:13am
the food. and, in fact, genetically modified food or ingredients are no different than any other ingredients or crop. and that is why they don't require labeling today. the federal food and drug administration said that the foods are not materially different. in other words, our bodies process them the exact way. >> and -- californians, americans, let's be honest. when somebody's walking out of a supermarket with a can of energy drink and three bags of chips, they going to eat whatever they want to eat. >> right. >> what actual percentage of the population is going to be affected by this -- actually care what is going into the food and change their buying habits? >> i think that people are interested in what is in their food. so are we. won't to provide fact-based information for consumers and has scientific evidence. the proponents of proposition 37 recognized that the measure would be essential putting a skull and cross bones on the product. that is what the big of the
9:14am
funder called the proposition 37 label. a skull and cross bone and that is not the case. the specific evidence is leave theming -- overwhelmingly clear that genetically engineered food are safe, they have been endorsed by the national academy of sciences, the world health organization and the american medical association voted at the annual meeting three months ago in june that there is no special labeling needed for bioengineering food. >> a lot of concern is that there is not enough research that has been done. things like allergens and whatnot. the products have been around a couple of decades but maybe that is not enough to know long- term effects. >> there have been studies done, more than 400 studies and they have been in the food supply for 20-plus years and we have eaten trillions and trillions of servings. there has been no scientifically based problems with this food. and really, you know, this is more than just a debate about genetically engineered food. this is about proposition 37. about a measure on the ballot
9:15am
on november 6th and people who have looked at it not just our campaign, don't believe me, but the overwhelming majority of editorial boards in california have urged the voters to reject that. >> okay, we are talking a lot about labeling. >> yeah. >> what are -- you said you had other concerns. you said out of the gate it was not about labeling. >> it's not. >> what are the other ones? >> it was drafted by an tern that this will allow attorneys a brand now avenue to sue grocery store retailers, food companies and family farmers alleging that they violated the terms of proposition 37. >> and they can go ahead and not violate the process. >> that's what i'm saying, they would be following the law and could get sued still. that is the problem. that is the problem. in fact, the chronicle, edward, in their editorial, said it would be costly for consumers and a legal nightmare, for those who grow and process the food. most grow would say and good
9:16am
intentions don't mean a valid initiative. >> we'll see what voters have to sea. as we have been talking about, a big weekend of events in the bay area. >> and just ahead, we're going to look at the local music festival going despite heavy hearts.
